Turn off your Computer!

electric2As companies try to cut cost in today's economic meltdown, an amazaing statistic surfaced recently. U.S. organizations squader 2.8 billion dollars a year to power computers that are unused. That's about 20 million tons of carbon dioxide roughly the equivalent of 4 million cars, thrown into the environment.  I know when I leave the Eagle at night, I somtimes forget to turn my PC off..what a waste!. It turns out that if the world's 1 billion PCs were powered down just one night, it would save enough energy to light the Empire State Building-inside and out-for over 30 years. I guess workers don't feel responsible for the electicity bills at work. It so simple to turn off your PC, takes about 1 or 2 seconds, and you are saving your company money, your saving the environment and it really will make a huge difference over time. I would tell you more, but I'm going to turn off my computer now.......see you next blog.

I celebrate my 59th birthday on April 2. I typed April 2 birthdays into the Google search engine, and discovered that Leon Russell was also born on April 2. Would you consider playing a song or two of his on April 2. Thank you.
